If you compare yourself to the tree,
so slender, strong and straight.
The tree does not express his strength,
in attempting to dominate.
He does not crush those weaker than him,
he cannot chase you off.
Just holds out those magnificent arms,
those branches he holds aloft.
Take a tree in a community,
who does not utter any words.
Not undertaking many deeds,
just as a shelter for the birds.
His roots are deep and solid,
no way he’ll be pushed about.
Remaining strong and silent
not pushing opinion out.
He gains the praise of nature
with a strength that’s so assured.
With a mightiness and perfection,
by following natures laws
